program is at the heart of what i believe is the ftc's proper role. in america, we use markets to organize our economy. consumers derive vast economic benefits over the long term from these markets. consumer protection policy in turn can have profound effects, both for good and ill, on these markets. the ftc and other public authorities operate against a backdrop of important consumer protection institutions, most notably the market in private. in our economy, consumers can beat to offer the most appealing mix of price and quality. but when competition alone cannot punish or to tour the hud deter, such as adult life to your customers, and keep your contractual promises. notwithstanding the strengths of the common law, sometimes, as one court enforcement is not feasible, private law just does not work. when market forces are inefficient and the common private law is ineffective, a public agencies such as the federal trade commission can help preserve competition and protect consumers. does, the ftc has a crucial role as an umpire in our economy. but it is not and should not be a star player
